A mistake most people do when choosing their life partner
From my point of view that the most common mistake which most people do when choosing their life partner is that they think their marriage life will mostly be about love, romance, sex, affection and adventure, but the reality is about 90% of the time will be like cleaning dishes, tidying up the house, cooking, shopping, paying bills and etc... The dishes won't clean up themselves, the house won't tidy its self up and the food won't be inside the fridge by itself. Someone has to do these things day in and day out. These are the things which you will be sharing with your partner most of the time. 90% of the marriage life will be about doing daily duties. Having a partner who says hurtful, unreasonable things won't maintain the marriage relationship at all. At certain time the marriage relationship will fall apart and won't continue. A strong emotional partner won't put up with a selfish hurtful person. So what it takes to live a life with someone for years?! Please consider that you will be sharing the same house, meals, travels and etc...You should think how will be your relationship with your future partner after 10 years of marriage? will you still be happy and blessed that you still have him/her in your life? If for any reason you doubt it, then I would strongly advise you to choose carefully your future life partner.
Marriage life needs two most important qualities to be successful and enjoyable. These two qualitied are like the two twings that would make the marriage survive, happy, lovable and healthy and without them the marriage life would be in the worse scenareos full of bitterness, resentment and disappointments. The two most important qualities are love and compassion. Compassion attribute between life partners will always make the marriage life for both partners very easy and merciful.
I personally think the miost common mistake that most people do when choosing their future spouse is that they don't choose a partner with same attributes of their best friend. It will just be awesome if you choose your future life partner who has the same attributes as your best friend. Your best friend lifts your spirit whenever you are down. Your best friend is your backbone who can support you whenever you are down. You find your best friend very enjoyable that time flies whenever you meet up. You laugh from your hearts together. You truly be yourself with him/her. Around your best friend you be very comfortable that you can speak anything under the sun. There are no conversational restrictions with your best friend. You don't have to hide things, or clean up your language. You feel you will be listened with no judgements. You don't faking a laugh because you truly joke about things. Your best friend always gets your jokes. Your true friend would always be there helping and supporting you whenever you need him\her. Your hanging out together is always fun. You must choose a life partner who you fit logether like two peas in a pot. You must have at least two common interests to make marriage enjoyable. There is a lovable quote "A person who loves you at your worst, deserves you at your best".
